Cheltenham Festival Day 3 Market Movers - Paisley Park And Sire Du Berlais Backed For Thursday Success

Thursday 14th March 2019
Paisley Park continues to shorten for the Stayers' Hurdle
Paisley Park continues to shorten for the Stayers' Hurdle

After four winning favourites on Wednesday afternoon, punters will be hoping for similar Cheltenham Festival Results on day three of the National Hunt extravaganza, and there have been some prominent figures at the head of the betting that have attracted support on Thursday morning and feature in our market movers.

We pick out some of the horses that have come in for significant support here:

Steamers

Paisley Park (Stayers' Hurdle) - 2/1 to 13/8

Four wins on the bounce has launched Paisley Park to the head of the Stayers' Hurdle betting and Emma Lavelle's stable star has been well supported in the betting on Thursday morning for the day's showpiece event.  A fine winner of the Cleeve Hurdle on Trials Day at Cheltenham in January, Paisley Park is the standout form choice in this contest and the punters are certainly backing him to land the Grade 1 staying contest.

Available at 2/1 in the early part of the morning, Paisley Park is now as short as 13/8 with some firms and with very little challenging him at the top of the market then he could continue to slash in odds as the countdown to the race continues.

Sire Du Berlais (Pertemps Final) - 6/1 into 9/2

Gordon Elliott supporters were buoyed by the master Irish trainer picking up a double on day two of the Cheltenham Festival, and they have certainly followed his charge Sire Du Berlais, who is a clear favourite for the Pertemps Final, which is the second race on the card at 2:10pm.

Well-backed in the ante-post markets for this 3m test, Sire Du Berlais was available at 6/1 in the early stages of the morning, but he is widely available now at 9/2 and he could be continued to be supported despite a huge field going to post for the handicap conundrum.

River Wylde (Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate) - 14/1 into 11/1

Nicky Henderson and Nico de Boinville teamed up for a sparkling double yesterday with William Henry and Altior claiming glory, and that deadly duo will look for more success on Thursday and River Wylde has been well supported in the betting offices, as he goes for glory in the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase, which is off at 4:10pm.

Available at 14/1 at the start of Thursday, the Seven Barrows inmate is now as short as 11/1 and while Henderson also saddles the favourite Janika in that race it's River Wylde that has been coming in for significant money.

Drifters

Walk To Freedom (Pertemps Final) - 11/1 out to 18/1

Jessica Harrington's Walk To Freedom will have the burden of top weight in the Pertemps Final at 2:10pm, and the punters are certainly feeling that the Irish raider will struggle to land a blow and he has drifted markedly on Thursday morning.

Around an 11/1 shot a few hours ago, Harrington's raider has eased to 18/1, so while he is one of the classiest horses in the race punters are finding it tough to fancy him in such a competitive betting heat.
